Summary

The bill defines inbound active duty military member as an
active duty military member who receives new orders, or a command
letter issued in lieu of orders, for a permanent change of station to a
department of defense military installation in Colorado.
The bill requires a school district, district charter school, and
institute charter school to accept the school liaison address for the military

installation for purposes of demonstrating residency for inbound active
duty military members participating in open enrollment.
The bill requires a school district, district charter school, and
institute charter school to grant guaranteed automatic matriculation to the
child of an inbound active duty military member while the child remains
in the school, and priority preference for younger siblings of the child for
enrollment in subsequent school years.
If an inbound active duty military member is mission essential as
certified by the commander of the military installation and is required to
live on the military installation due to that certification, the inbound
active duty military member's child must be enrolled in the school or
program of a school district or in the charter school of the inbound active
duty military member's choice. The school shall grant guaranteed
automatic matriculation while the child remains in the school and siblings
receive priority preference for enrollment in the school in subsequent
school years.
